My Collection:

Some people collect salt and pepper shakers, some coffee mugs, for others it's spoons. I collect music boxes. In particular, I really enjoy music boxes from the San Fransisco Music Box Co. They make beautiful, well-made quality music boxes. I have quite a few, my favorites being the snowglobe type. I remember going to visit my Grandma and she had a few music boxes placed in her kitchen window. Oh how I loved to sit at her kitchen table, wind them up, and listen to their unique sounds. I would watch the intriquite moving parts and listen with such fascination, I was hooked on them. Since Scott and I have been married, he has tried to get me a music box every year for my birthday or Christmas. I just love the memories they bring back of my simple childhood, our family visits to Grass Valley, CA., and my Grandma and Grandpa Baker.

Too bad they went out of business. :( Wow! We have so much in common! I collect music boxes too. I haven't unpacked them at this house yet. I don't have anywhere to display them. I might have to look into a curio cabinet.

That Wizard of Oz music box sure is cute! I haven't bought a music box for awhile. Not as easy to find them since Starbucks is where music boxes should be.

Alaskagirl - I collect the dust too. Unfortunately I am a big collector of that! I'll have to take care of that during spring break. OR NOT! hehe!
